HOLLYWOOD PARK OPENING DAY

Race 1

We head back to the synthetic surface in what could be the last meet ever at historical Hollywood Park, but we will wait and see. No.2 Natalie’s Academy has never been off the board in four starts at this 6 furlong distance and owns a win here. No.4 Attack the Jack has won three of her four starts here all back to back and Mullins drops her below the claimed price so all is not well. 2*-4

Race 2

No.2 Living Our Dream is back at her favorite track. No.3 Plazarita’s last win came here at this 1 1/16 distance. No.5 Musical Grace has dangerous early speed and can get the distance. 2-3-5

Double

1st 2-4

2nd 2-3-5

Race 3

No.2 Akkadian has found a real good spot and the right distance on the grass to get the win. No.5 Oligarch is the speed and must be caught. 2-5

Race 4

No.2 She’s a Go Girl had a real nice work here on Oct. 31st which sets her up for this. No.6 Kevin’s Kool Kat ran her best race here back in July and now Gomez takes over. No.7 Spooky Lady is a live first time starter. 2-6-7

No.1 Greeley Awesome looks to have found his level. Second time starter No.5 Salah Champ and No.8 Beau Diablo both exit the same race. 1-5-8

Exacta box 1-5-8 and win and place 1

Race 7

No.6 Candy’s Sunrise gets off the grass and will find a hot pace to sit off of. He may find himself in the garden spot turning for home. No.7 My Slew will also sit off the pace as will the course loving No.9 Master Chef. No.10 Sun’s Out comes off a long layoff but has been working good at Santa Anita. If he can transfer those works he will be a danger. 6-7-9-10

Race 8

No.3 Tanquerray ran good in her first start going down the hill and that race will set her up for this 6 furlong turf sprint. No.4 Luxuriance is a first time starter with some fast works who is bred to love this 6 furlong turf distance and her trainer can strike with a first time starter. No.6 Peppy Bolly comes off the layoff but finished second on this course in her last start back in December. She could be a much faster filly as a 3yo. 3-4-6
